The Best Of Dissonant Metal

Do not be fooled with the title. This is not a "best of ..." or " a guide to..." type of list. I've chosen this title because its better than "mz's favorite dissonant metal albums". I've noticed that albums with dissonant elements tend to cater to my taste and by dissonance, I do not mean the literal meaning of especial arrangement of notes discussed in theoretic music courses. Rather, I use this term as it has became a proper convention in metal communities when it comes to describing certain bands that often have a very especial avantgarde approach. These are albums which I find interesting in this field.
One album per band, with the exception of those bands that have albums which are vastly different in sounds. In the other words, I've put two BAN albums here.
Recommendations are encouraged and more than welcomed.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Altars - Paramnesia
3. AMNIS NIHILI - Christological Escalation
4. Antediluvian - λόγος
5. Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn

The Best Of French Black Metal

You guessed it. The best black metals from the land of garlic and cheese. Generally regarded as the Unholy Promised Land of the most colourless genre of metal, and for good reason.

I've probably missed quite a few bands off this list so some helpful reminders would be nice. I've only included one band from the LLN, because quite frankly I could only think of one band from that silly scene even half worthy of being mentioned on such a list.

1. Aes Dana - Formors
2. Alcest - Le Secret
3. Alien Deviant Circus - Satanic Djihad
4. Anorexia Nervosa - Drudenhaus
5. Antaeus - Blood Libels
